Wigan Athletic and West Bromwich Albion go head-to-head at the DW Stadium in round seven of the EFL Championship on Tuesday.

The Latics are yet to taste victory in front of their home fans this season and will be desperate to end this poor record.

Wigan Athletic were sent crashing down to earth last Saturday as they fell to a 5-1 humbling at the hands of Burnley.

Prior to that, they picked up their first victory of the season, seeing off Birmingham City 1-0 on August 20 to end their four-game winless run.

Wigan, who are currently 20th in the Championship table, head into Tuesday without a home win this season, claiming two draws and losing once in that time.

Meanwhile, West Bromwich Albion failed to return to winning ways last time out as they could only come from behind to salvage a 2-2 draw with Huddersfield Town away from home.

Prior to that, the Baggies were dumped out of the EFL Cup in the second round courtesy of a 1-0 loss away to Derby County.

West Brom have now failed to taste victory in their opening four away games across all competitions, picking up two draws and losing twice.
